lyrics

If only life could be more like the movies
I'd be sad, but not so fucking dull
And I know it'll work out well
cause that last scene's already been shot

I don't believe in using tricks
but do believe some magic works
Yeah I know some magic works

I keep on counting the lines across my face
Every inch a lasting trace
Do you ever feel like life's passing you by
like it's too late?

If only days could be filled with just highlights
Every word, every word just means the world
and the hero never dies
cause it's all planned and scripted that way

Well I don't live in cheesy flicks
But I sure do hope this goes down well
God I hope it'll work out well

I keep on counting the lines across my face
Every inch a lasting trace
Do you ever feel like life's passing you by
like it's too late?

Lives living between the lines - struggling with words to say
our hearts have grown so cold
Days that we spend passing time – living with hearts on our sleeves
and fists clenched to our chest

If only life wouldn't cause so much heartache
Loved ones lost, as life won't play by the rules
We find comfort in our friends
And shoulder that we can lean on

I don't believe in using tricks
but do believe some magic works
Yeah I know some magic works
